New iPhone 5 insight, 2011 will release handsets

By Jamie Pert - Mar 5, 2011

Now that the iPad 2 has been officially announced we are now wondering whether we will soon find out details regarding an iPhone 4 release soon, it is pretty much certain that we will see an iPhone 5 in 2011, however what can we expect from this smartphone?

The iPad 2 is slimmer, faster and lighter than its predecessor, there for many expect the new iPhone 5 to be slimmer, faster and lighter than the iPhone 4.

Apple’s iPhone 4 is 9.3mm thick and weighs 137 grams, after calculating the percentage difference between the iPad an iPad 2 we can say that the iPhone 5 may weigh 121 grams and be just 6mm thick, obviously these figures will not be 100% accurate, however many would be surprised if the iPhone 5 was thicker and heavier than the iPhone 4, its just not what we have come to expect from Apple.

As you probably know Apple use the same processors in the iPhone 4 as they do in the original iPad, therefore we expect this to be the case with the next-gen iPad and next-gen iPhone 5, we know that the next-gen iPad (aka iPad 2) uses a custom-designed 1GHz dual-core Apple A5 processor (SoC), therefore we also expect the iPhone 5 to use the same chip, which means that performance will be much faster and in-game graphics will be far superior than before.

A lot of this article is speculative, however we think we sill see many parallels when you compare the iPhone 4 and iPad to the iPhone 5 and iPad 2, what do you think?

  • lame article

    darn! I just wasted my 4 mins to read this darn article. What a lame article! My 5 years old daugher can predict what will be the iphone 5 better than this guy.

  • So now Apple is RUSHING a new iPhone product…since their average yearly cycle is up to 2 years. They now have to make a new iPhone in less than a year after iPhone 4 launch…since they need more time to beta test before its estimated release in June/July this year.

    Respect to Apple. I dont mind iPhone not having flash capabilities since saving battery and browser data is more important than playing facebook games (since other flash games needs keyboard to play)

    Based on your calculations iPhone 6 would be just 3mm thick and weigh as much as a shiny quarter…. Not sure I would use the iPad changes to determine what iPhone 5 has in store for us.
